Managing the Waterway sale

Many of you may be familiar with the Managing the Waterway cruising guides and resources. They have some good stuff. Diane passed on that they are having a sale to clear some inventory, so you might want to check it out.

Our son is going off to college and Mark and I have moved back aboard full-time.

Unfortunately, we’re in Virginia and our fulfillment house in Minnesota is relocating. We need to move our inventory out the door rather than paying other people to move heavy boxes of books for us.

So we decided to throw a "wild and wacky warehouse bonanza sale!"

We’re offering all of our cruising guides, chart guides, books and charts at the following discounted rates …

$15.00 Managing the Waterway: ICW (regularly $24.95)
$15.00 MTW: Florida Keys (reg. $24.95)
$30.00 MTW: Chicago to Paducah Inland Waterway ChartGuide (reg. $49.95)
$15.00 Electronic Chart and Nautical Reference Library (2-DVD Set) (reg. $39.95)
$15.00 Get Onboard With E-Charting (reg. $34.95)

… with FREE SHIPPING by USPS Media Mail to the United States. (International orders please email us for a shipping quote.)

These short-term sale prices aren’t compatible with our web shopping cart, so if you are interested please reply to this email with your order and a mailing address. I’ll reply with options for payment and confirmation of your order.

You can view sample pages and descriptions of each title at: www.managingthewaterway.com.

So please give us a hand here and help us "lighten up"!

And as everyone knows, they make great gifts for other boaters!

Fair winds,

54 Bolger Pilothouse – “L’Tranger

>>> 54 Bolger Pilothouse – “L’Tranger

One of the largest Bolger designs I’ve ever seen, and definitely the largest I’ve seen actually in the water. Neat looking, although like most Bolgers, a bit different.

Lot’s more pictures at the link.


Type: "Walrus" displacement motorsailor
LOA: 62′ LOD: 54′ LWL: 52′ 3 Beam: 13′ 1 Draft: 2′ Displacement: 66,350 lbs (full load) Ballast: 10,000 lbs lead Designer: Phil Bolger, Gloucester, MA, USA Builder: Syltes Shipyard, Maple Ridge, BC & Paul Albert Construction: Welded Cor-ten steel hull and deck with transom hung rudder and aluminum pilothouse Colour: Burgundy hull, white trim

The boat was designed as a motorsailor in 1998 by Phil Bolger to the owners specifications. It was designed as a one/two person liveaboard Chinese-gaff cat auxiliary, to allow several years of continuous 4 season liveaboard in the sub-arctic climate of the Alaskan coastline and the inland waters of the NW Territories. While capable of offshore and coastal cruising, her major design objective is to facilitate river exploration as well as crossing oceans. She was designed as a survival machine with creature comforts. Over $800,000 has been invested. For more details please contact us. Her present location is in the Fraser river and is available for viewing by appointment.

Classic 64 Penn Yan for sale

Classic and very pretty looking boat for sale. I don’t think they build them like that anymore.


Needing to part ways with my Original 64 Penn Yan lapstrake.
I bought it from the original owner 12(?) years ago. it has always been a trailer boat stored till used in side. 115 feet long plywood lap strake construction mahogany trim and deck.
It has a period Mercury 35 HP outbooard that runs well. It is complete as it was issued and comes with two gas tanks.
The trailer I bought new is galvanized.
I just finished putting fresh varnish on the top side. The sides are white and good condition. Wood is solid. Small soft area at top of bow where it meets the deck. About the first inch or so.
The boat is a nice survivor from this boat building period. Not many originals around any more. located in Belmont New York 14813. about 80 miles south of Rochester and Buffalo. photos at flickr:
